Bacon & Egg Breakfast Crepes

These easy savory crepes are adapted from my favorite crepe recipe. I just left out the sugar and vanilla and added a pinch more salt to make them more of a savory breakfast. They taste similar to a breakfast burrito, but with crepes instead of a flour tortilla.

What I love about this recipe is that it’s fool proof and delicious! Simply whip up the batter in the blender in a matter of minutes. Plus they taste great any time of day and are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Sometimes when I’m going all out (birthdays, etc), I’ll make a crepe bar and have both savory and sweet crepe fillings. Everyone always loves it and has so much fun filling their own crepes. Perfect for a crowd!

Cooking Tips

I’ve learned a few tips and tricks from making endless amounts of crepes over the years. With these simple pointers, you’ll have perfectly cooked crepes each time!

  • Chill the batter for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. Allowing the gluten to rest gives them a light and airy consistency.
  • Use a nonstick pan so that the crepes will easily slide right out of the pan. The last thing you want is for the batter to stick! It also helps to spray the pan in between each crepe.
  • Pour just enough batter so that it fills the pan, but the crepes aren’t too thick. I’ve found that 1/4 cup batter is usually the perfect amount for an 8″ pan.

Savory Crepe Fillings

If you’re wondering what to put inside these breakfast crepes, below are a few delicious options. My favorite combination is scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese and green onions.

Sometimes I’ll also add in veggies like bell peppers, mushrooms or spinach. You could even mix them into the scrambled eggs while you’re cooking those in the skillet. Ham and cheese crepes are always a great idea too!

Looking for a sweet filling? Check out this delicious cream cheese crepe filling that tastes amazing in strawberry crepes, lemon crepes or rich chocolate crepes.

Making Crepes in Advance

Crepes are the perfect make-ahead breakfast because the batter needs time to chill anyways. I like to make the batter the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Then just give it a quick stir the next morning before cooking.

You can also cook the crepes in advance and refrigerate them for up to 3 days. It helps to stack them on a plate with a piece of wax paper in between each crepe (to avoid sticking).

Then when you’re ready to serve, quickly heat them up on a pan or in the microwave. It’s so easy and they taste just as delicious as making them fresh!

Keeping warm: To keep cooked crepes warm, place them in the oven on a baking sheet at 175°F until serving. This is especially helpful if serving a large crowd!
